Allies of the Black Lives Matter movement would love nothing more than to convince the nation that everything they are is encapsulated in their name. How could you oppose such an organization? Do you believe that black lives don’t matter, you white devil? You racist! How dare you show your face in public? Shouldn’t you be hiding behind a white mask, burning a cross in some poor neighbor’s yard, you monster? Why don’t you go back to writing your manifesto about how we should return all people of color to Africa!?
Except, like Antifa, the name of the Black Lives Matter organization is little more than a red herring. An organization that really cared about black lives wouldn’t support an abortion industry that snuffs out thousands of black lives every year. An organization that really believed that black lives matter wouldn’t turn a blind eye to the epidemic of black murders in Chicago, Detroit, and every other major city in the country. An organization that was aligned with its title would not – in any way, shape, or form – call for the defunding and abolition of the police.
In truth, Black Lives Matter (like Antifa), is a Trojan Horse. It is right beside radical feminism and other leftist causes, fighting for “equality” when really they are fighting for something much different. They aren’t fighting against racist cops or systemic racism; that would be a very limited and short fight, indeed. There just isn’t that much of that particular shadow enemy to go around (different though you may hear from the media).
No, they are fighting against the very foundations of our country: Freedom of Speech, independence, individual greatness, One Creator, and economic freedom. They are fighting, most vehemently, against capitalism and the unprecedented wealth that it has created – not just for the U.S. but for the whole world.
But don’t take our word for it. A 2015 video resurfaced this week in which BLM co-founder Patrisse Cullors admitted to a Morgan State University professor that their group is dedicated to the ideals put forward by Karl Marx.
Asked about criticism of Black Lives Matter – that they “lack ideological direction” – Cullors said that nothing could be further from the truth.
“We do have an ideological frame,” she said. “Myself and Alicia [Garza] in particular are trained organizers. We are trained Marxists. We are super-versed on, sort of, ideological theories. We want to build a movement that could be utilized by many, many black folk. We don’t necessarily want to be the vanguard of this movement. I think we’ve tried to put out a political frame that’s about centering who we think are the most vulnerable amongst the black community, to really fight for all of our lives.”
The founders of Black Lives Matter (much like the founders of the Women’s March) are radical socialists who want to transform this country until it looks like Venezuela or the Soviet Union. Except, you know, this time it’ll definitely work and won’t be a colossal disaster…unlike every other time it’s been tried.
